Psychology of Exercise, Health, and Physical Activity (PEHPA) Laboratory

Welcome to the Psychology of Exercise, Health, and Physical Activity Laboratory (PEHPA Lab).

The PEHPA Lab is overseen by Dr. Mark Beauchamp, who is a Professor in the School of Kinesiology at The University of British Columbia and a Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research Scholar (Population Health). Drawing from diverse disciplines (that include behavioural medicine, organizational psychology, and education) our program is concerned with (a) understanding both barriers to, and facilitators of, physical activity behaviour across the age spectrum, and (b) developing conceptually-sound evidence-based interventions that are cost-effective and sustainable.

Colin Wierts

Colin Wierts

colin.wierts@ubc.ca

Colin completed his Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences, and a Master of Science in Kinesiology (with a specification in sport psychology) at Brock University. Colin’s Master’s thesis examined Canadian university sport coaches’ awareness, use, and knowledge of Motivational Interviewing (MI; Miller & Rollnick, 2013). Colin’s Mater’s research was funded by an Ontario Graduate Scholarship, and is the recipient of a 4-year fellowship through UBC. Colin is now in the first year of his PhD studies, and his research interests revolve around human motivation, and the integration and adaption of motives by athletes and exercisers. Specifically, Colin is interested in the potential application MI can have for athletic coaches attempting to motivate their athletes to make behavioural changes associated with athletic success. In his free time, Colin enjoys playing golf and hockey, running, reading, and keeping up with his favourite hockey team, the Toronto Maple Leafs.
